Synopsis

Presented in the form of a feverish love dream, 1001 Nights (based on Amano`s book of artwork) is the first performance of the groundbreaking "Filmharmonic" series, which presents new orchestral works by film composers in tandem with short films made by A-list directors. Nights is the series's only animated work, and plans originally called for the film to be completely computer animated.

Story : The story for this anime will be hard for a lot of people to pick up on because it relies entirely on visuals. If you like to analyze things, go for it. I just took two classes for analyzing art and literature, so I enjoyed it easily. If you find yourself going "WTF?" over the simplest of symbolism, I don't recommend you watching this one. You will be vastly confused. The fact that it requires more thinking than the average anime and the story itself is nothing amazingly original has prompted me to give it a 6.

This is an abstract art music video, not a piece of narrative fiction, so don't be expecting ninja vampires going to high school and fighting crime. That MAL makes you rate "story" or "character" is a bit silly, since that's not the point here. The characters and setting are an excuse for beautiful pictures. I enjoyed this as a twenty minute piece of visual art set to lush orchestration. The premise is an amorous dream shared by two Arabian nobles, and every image bleeds together quite organically into the next. There is no special meaning or message to discern. It read more

Although 1,001 Nights is really quite beautiful, is is not what most people expect when they think of anime. There is no dialogue at all and, if you are not familiar with the story of a concubine who kept the sultan from killing her as he had all the other women he slept with by transfixing him with fascinating story every night, it will make no sense to you whatsoever. Some of the tales spun over the 1001 nights include Alibaba and the 40 thieves, Aladdin's Magic Lamp, many more. At just short of 30 minutes, this festival of stylistic hand read more

Eng dubbed (however, only the intro had vocals once the show began it was just a musical)
More classic music art than regular anime

Story/art
A cluster of events all coexisting with one. Story wise and art wise. With the stories the scene would change slightly and so would the character's personalities. Art wise you would have semi realistic art, black and white art, dark art, light art, morphed art, and a bunch of others.

The intro to the film was a lovely original concept. You start by seeing what appears to be a massive artwork. As the film pans in to its goal you see a lot more read more
